Kenyan opposition leader calls for petitions against vote won by Kenyatta

Top Stories - Tue, 10/31/2017 - 11:46

By Katharine Houreld and Ed Cropley NAIROBI (Reuters) - Kenyan opposition leader Raila Odinga on Tuesday called for pickets and petitions against an election he boycotted last week won by President Uhuru Kenyatta but stopped short of appealing for mass protests or announcing a court challenge to the result. Odinga pulled out of the vote saying it would be unfair because the election board had failed to implement reforms after the Supreme Court cited procedural irregularities and annulled an Aug. 8 vote that had been won by Kenyatta. Odinga said the Oct. 26 result would not stand but did not announce measures likely to overturn it or force the government to negotiate.

More iPhone X first impressions: Not quite a perfect 10 but still pretty great

Macworld - Tue, 10/31/2017 - 11:45

While the rest of the world has a few days (or, gulp, weeks) to wait for the new iPhone X, Apple has bestowed review units on a few bloggers and vloggers, and their first thoughts have arrived. And surprise, surprise, they’re very positive.

The impact on you at home: With a phone like iPhone X, first impressions matter, and Apple clearly wants everyone to know just how cool its new phone really is. The first group of hand-picked bloggers and vloggers here are a departure from the usual select-group of journalists, so Apple is targeting a very different audience with these first impressions. And Apple only gave most of its “regular” reviewers a day to get to know the new phone, much less time than usual. When in-depth reviews start landing later this week and beyond we’ll have a more technical understanding of its pros and cons, but for now, Apple wants us oohing and aaahing over the iPhone X’s cool factor.
